History Of Freight Forwarding
Freight Forwarding is an important piece in the production chain. Freight forwarders organise the physical movement of goods traded from the point of production to the ultimate final destination of the cargo. Freight forwarding may look as simple as transporting something from production point to end user, but in reality it is much more complex , it involves organising not only the movement of the shipment but the preparation of documentation in such a way so as to meet the destination countries requirements

There is not much difference in the responsibilities of freight forwarders today as compared to freight forwarders 100 years ago. Freight forwarding dates back to the 1800’s. Inn Keepers were the original freight forwarders, they would look after the baggage of guests and then forward them on when requested. This method developed over many years and was further developed with the introduction of business to business baggage and contracts.

The role of a freight forwarder today is not much different to the past the biggest change has to do with the mode of operation, rather than the process. From the pen and paper era we have moved into the use of pre-printed documentation and digital technology which has revolutionised almost every shipping operation.

Improvement in transportation methods as experienced in the availability of reliable trains and steamships in the 1970s, international trading between countries received a big boost especially between Europe and North America. This trade increase has now transformed into a dominant industry.

The transportation of international cargo is essential for our modern trading. Freight forwarders provide the means to move goods from one place or country to another, without freight forwarding services the international economy would be in ruins. Like other industries the freight forwarding business is constantly changing with the introduction of new and better technologies.

What is a Freight Forwarder and Freight Forwarding?
A international freight forwarding company is a company that organises the international shipping of cargo from origin to the ultimate destination. Freight Forwarders  can help with a range of requirements like negotiating the logistical complications involved in shipping, allowing the shipper to concentrate on their business.

Services Offered By Freight Forwarders
Labeling and Packaging – Organising Labeling and adding special instructions and requirements (if needed).

Blocking/Bracing/Lashing- Freight Forwaders will take care of securing cargo especially when transporting large and heavy machinery and equipment.

Documentation – The preperation of documentation,  meaning things like  Invoices, bills-of-lading, inspection certificates, and export licenses are among the types of documents that a freight forwarder can help a shipper create.

Warehousing – Storage is another piece to the logistics puzzle , CargoMaster can help with Storage. If storage is required a Freight Forwarder can help.

Insurance – is importatant and a freight forwarder will provide insurance service that protects the shipper from liability in the event of lost or damaged goods.

Hazard Labels for

Each class/division has a corresponding label that accurately represents the nature of the hazard. These labels must be attached to the package during transport and remain intact throughout the journey. Take a look at the illustrated examples below to understand how these labels effectively communicate the potential dangers.

Under regulations, labels must be clearly visible on the outside of the package and must stay on the package while in transit.

You can often find labels printed on most inner packages such as:

  • aerosol cans
  • bottles of bleach
